It's pretty obvious China reverse engineered 9M311 they got with Kashtan CIWS on Sovremenny class destroyers.

your definition of Original is only based off of external apperance?
Can you speak to the internal aspect of the design? does the control surfaces move via the same type of mechanism?
To me, basing originality off of JUST external looks is as riduclous as saying auto maker B is not original because auto make A put out a car with the same number of wheels/doors.
You guys are sad.
It's the same fuсking missile. Sapienti sat.
What is the range of the rockets that it can intercept?...
Tu-144 and Concorde
Machines designed for a similar purpose often look alike. Just saying.
You can't really judge it by looks alone.
